TWINSBURG -- The Twinsburg Historical Society building, formally the Twinsburg Institute founded and built by the Rev. and Dr. Samuel Bissell in 1866, has been placed on the National Register of Historical Places by the U.S. Department of Interior.
The National Register of Historic Places is the United States federal government's official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects deemed worthy of preservation. For a property to be eligible for the National Register, it must meet at least one of four criteria.
Information about architectural styles, association with various aspects of social history and commerce and ownership are all parts of the nomination. Each nomination contains a narrative that provides a detailed physical description of the property and justifies why it is significant historically, with regard either to local, state or national history.
Only one other building in Twinsburg is on the National Register of Histroic Place, The Twinsburg Congregational Church on Church Street on the Square.
